Right off the bat you want to see Sophie succeed but because of the language barrier, she gets treated like she's a bit stupid .. which she is not. With the character of Alec, you can feel his grief and that grief has caused him to distance himself from his kids (whether on purpose or not). The kids have all had to grow up fast and you just want to hug them all and tell them that one day it will be better.
I don't want to spoil the actual story for you so I will let you enjoy it on your own.
The children were way too perfect, and they talked more like adults than children. They all behaved like adults. They were teenagers, and I just cannot believe there wasn't more trouble. They never did anything wrong, they never fought, they never made the wrong choices (with a few dramatic exceptions). I just didn't feel like any of them were real...Even Sophie's and Alec were just way too perfect...
So of all Lori Wick's books I've read thus far, this is my least favorite. But it was still an enjoyable read.
The Riley family are in mourning over the loss of their mother. They are lost and in need of someone to help them. When Alex Riley 's sister suggests hiring Sophie as their new housekeeper, what follows is an amazing story if love, fellowship, and acceptance.
This is definitely one of Lori Wick's best books!
